    NOT A TEACHER.

    The second sentence sounds more natural. But the first could also work:

    "The county board is advertising, for public consideration, two redistricting plans."

    The emphasis would be on "for public consideration."

    I don't have the slightest clue what a redistricting plan is.

    Redistricting is a method in the U.S. to re-establish boundaries of areas within states to accomodate increases or decreases in population for political purposes. Based on the results of redistricting, areas may gain or lose the number of state representatives/senators.
